An exciting change as The Advocate goes digital

As you can read in the front page story, The Madison Press is going digital. It will change to an online edition that combines with The Plain City Advocate and will come out every Friday morning. That edition will be the paper that everyone knows, now in a digital format with extra features. Those of you who already have subscriptions to the paper will be rolled over. If you don’t have a subscription, for $5.95 a month you’ll have full access to the new digital newspaper.

This change is completely new for our community and that’s a very exciting proposal.

Moving forward

You’ll be able to read the digital Madison Press on your phone, on your computer and on your tablet.

It is new, it is different. But it is still be a Madison County paper and we want to continue to have the support of the community. As much as the success of this new product rests on my shoulders and the shoulders of the newspaper’s parent company, AIM Media Midwest, it also rests on yours. If you want The Madison Press, if you believe in The Madison Press, if you want it to grow and get better, you have to support it with a subscription. And I hope you do.

Madison Press staff

I want to thank the staff members that I have worked with here. Sandy Powers in circulation and Mark Gaver in advertising did not have an easy job, but they did it well.

And of course, I want to thank the newsroom: Andrew, Chris and Diana. You guys did the job of 10 people and despite all of our obstacles, were committed to putting out a quality newspaper. Thank you to Jane and Jeff and all the others who sent us stories and kept us up to date. Doing the news is a team effort.

These next couple of weeks are going to be an interesting journey for all of us. But I will do my best to bring this community their newspaper. I hope you stick with us and support your provider of local news.
